While others in the industry are cutting funds for education and training programs for its employees, SpecialtyCare continues to strengthen existing programs, while developing new ones. Vice President of Quality and Clinical Performance Bryan Wilent says it’s critical to have not only skilled clinicians in the operating room, but confident clinicians. And that is what SpecialtyCare’s IONM training program aims to do.
Wilent sat down for a recent episode of Scrubbing In, to talk about his extensive background in neuroscience and how SpecialtyCare is preparing associates – all of whom come with various backgrounds and are at different stages in their career–for every possible OR situation. Through a combination of classroom and hands-on experiences, Wilent says SpecialtyCare recognizes the value of proper training and how this investment in associates is worth the cost, especially when you’re a leader in the industry.
“When your hands and your brain are in sync, everything goes smoother,” said Wilent. “And that training phase–of training your hands to move in concert with your thoughts and to think and move quickly–is the real trick to being a really adept and savvy clinical neuroscientist, clinical neurophysiologist.”
Because when it comes to IONM, he says “We’re not trying to just be providing this service. We’re trying to set what is the standard–what is the best service, the best IONM that can be provided for patients by being the leaders in the field.”
